Livelihoods at the Limit: Food Security in a Changing World. Evidence from the Consolidated Household Economy Analysis Database,
The report leverages the consolidated Household Economy Analysis (HEA) and cost of the Diet (CoD) databases to explore food security patterns of poorer households in rural and urban settings, and offers policy and programme design recommendations based on the findings. The report makes use of nationally representative data from Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, as well as more limited data from other countries in the Sahel, East and Southern Africa, South East Asia, and Latin America. It highlights the growing importance of the cash economy, the critical role of livestock in agricultural economies, and the growing tendency for labour to provide a means of obtaining cash income for poorer households in agricultural areas.
